Comments about ULTA Matte Prime:

I use this product everyday before I apply my powder foundation and it mattiefies the skin very nicely and can definetly be worn alone. It provides a nice smooth surface and I always get compliments on how my makeup looks. I love this product. I must say that it does not last all day but that's fine with me. I don't mind touching up a little with my powder. Really recommend it if you have oily skin like myself.

Comments about ULTA Matte Prime:

I got a sample of this primer, loved it, so I stocked up when they went on sale 2/12$. I am a big fan. Leaves my skin smooth and helps foundation go on great. It's matifying properties are decent but I suggest keeping rice papers on hand for touch-ups over time. No product is a miracle. The only downside it the weird glowing purple color. That can't be natural. Overall I am a big fan. This is my go-to primer. Great price. Give it a try!!

    Comments about ULTA Matte Prime:

    I have been using this for about 2 weeks now and I absoluelty love it! I usually have problems with oily skin and keeping my makeup on all day but with this my makeup doesn't move. I still get oily but not nearly as bad as I usually get. I was a little nervouse using it because I am prone to breakouts, but it doesn't seem to irritate my skin.

    Better than Smashbox Photofinish

      Comments about ULTA Matte Prime:

      I'm basicly new to using make up, so i decided to try a ton of different things from ULTA. I had read so many great PhotoFinish reviews that I was super excited. Although Smashbox made my skin smoother, and my pores less noticeable, ULTA also did that, plus it made my very oily mug matte so my inperfectings weren't constantly glistening. I don't do other people's makeup, so I can't tell you how it works on other peoples skin, but for my own use, this was perfect. It's clear and not noticeable. Absolutely great alone, so even super upclose your face will look completely bare, but less flawed. In under 8hrs it does wear off if you are working hard, or you spent the whole day intensely glazing into your laptop, but it's still totally worth the purchase.

      • Oily Skin

      Comments about ULTA Matte Prime:

      I received a sample of Ulta Flawless Primer and was impressed at how mattifying it was so I decided to try this one. I absoulutely love it! It controls my super oily skin beautifully. I still get a little oily after about 5-6 hours but this is the best primer I've tried. I dropped one star because it does not conceal my pores very well so I have to find something else for that. Overall, I will continue to repurchase this product because nothing has worked better for my oily skin.

        Great for oily skin! It doesn't seem to last all day, but this primer is better than any others that I have tried. The price is also very resonable!

          I've tried samples of Smashbox and other premium brands, this one seems to work just as well. I even use it on my eyelids to make my eye shadow stay put. I'm pleased overall.

            It is light, feels good on my skin, and in general is a great primer.

              This is actually the best primer I've bought so far.
              I used benefit "perfect primer" before but it didn't last and also its starts to flake. My makeup looks smooth and it last all day long. SO HAPPY!!!

                  This product is a milky translucent color that applies and dries invisibly. It is suitable for use for all skin tones. It is not color correcting, but it provides a beautiful matte finish.

                  For redness correcting, we recommend ULTA Flawless Prime (Item #: 2220412), which features a green tint to neutralize redness and even skin tone:
